A Terrible Secret
translated by Jennifer Hutchison
On the only morning of the year that Maggie Alexander sat down to breakfast with her mother, her father and her brother, she wanted to run away. Run away from her house, from her family, from Montreal, everything.
A year ago today, Maggie's younger brother was struck and killed in a hit-and-run. To make matters worse she's starting a new year at school and her friend Chloe is acting very strangely. But worst of all, Maggie has a secret--a secret she can't tell anyone, and that threatens to tear her life, and her family's lives, apart.
Set against the gritty background of inner-city Montreal, A Terrible Secret is suspenseful story about a young woman who can't escape her past.
